Announcement   welcome! thanks for stopping by to check out my work! please check back often, as new items are listed frequently!

all of my pieces are wheel thrown (unless otherwise stated), and made with love in my basement studio!

if you have ordered from me before, you might notice that i have had to increase my shipping charges. i am so very sorry about this. in fact, i am pretty sure it bothers me more than it bothers you. i love to ship fedex. it is, in my opinion, the quickest and most reliable way to get pieces from my basement to your home. please note that all of my pieces ship at a discounted rate when shipped with other items....i am not looking to make any money off of shipping. the increase in shipping charges helps me keep the price of my pieces lower and more affordable. i appreciate your understanding! :)

are you local to acworth, ga? if so, i am so excited to announce that my pottery is now for sale at the woodstock market! if you haven't been there, you need to go! so many great finds! if the market is not convenient for you, enter LOCALPICKUP in the coupon code section at checkout....no shipping will be charged and we can arrange for you to pick up your purchase.

are you on fb? if so, please "like" my page....the basement potter! would love to share my studio happenings with you! :)

About

the basement potter - pottery handcrafted in my basement for your home!

about 8 years ago i discovered my love for pottery! i had recently moved to a new state, found myself a little bit homesick, and decided to take a pottery class at a local art facility to fill my time. it is something i had always wanted to try - but just never did.

well, after a couple of classes, i was hooked! i couldn't get enough time in the studio - i just LOVED it! i went from taking classes, to being a studio assistant, to teaching - all in a few short years.

i am super lucky to have a very supportive husband who, after a few years, encouraged me to set up my own studio at our home. i started with a wheel and a kiln in a small room in my basement. from there, things evolved quickly and soon i had a fully functional pottery studio (with water!) with wheels not just for for me, but also for a few special students. the basement potter studio was a reality and boy, was i excited!

i spend a lot of time in my basement. i love to make pretty things. when i am not covered in clay, i am a wife to my husband, and mom to my two teenage daughters. i am so lucky to have their support to follow my passion and do what i love to do.

i take a lot of pride in my work and hope that you like it as much as i do!

from my basement to your home,

thanks for stopping by and checking out my work! i am a relatively new potter - having only discovered my love for working on the wheel a little over 8 years ago. every day that i can work in my basement studio is a great day for me. i love to get messy, try new things, and make beautiful and functional pieces that i can share with family, friends, and you!

while i only ever sell first quality work (there have only ever been a few exceptions to this rule, and they have been clearly noted), please remember a few things regarding wheel thrown, hand crafted works. they are never "perfect". it is impossible for them, no matter how hard i try, for them to be so. machines make perfect - people do not. that is just how it is. as a result, nothing will ever be "perfectly" round, "perfectly" uniform, "perfectly" level, you get the drift. but please know this....i try my hardest to get to as close to perfect as possible and i would never sell anything i wouldn't want to give to my best friend, or use in my own home. sending something i have created out into the world with my name on it is a big deal from me. i would rather have very heavy garbage (and i often do) than ever sell anything that i was not happy with. :)

Payment
i happily and joyfully accept credit cards. no checks......sorry. checks are just a pain.
Shipping
once payment is received, all items will ship via fedex within 2 business days. i want to make sure all pieces get to their final destination in one pretty piece, so lots of care is taken when packaging. i try to be as fair as possible with my shipping charges. please know that i am not out to make money off of shipping charges. not even one little bit. i promise.

if you would like to purchase multiple items, which would really be awesome, and the shipping is less than what you are charged, i will happily refund the difference. please keep in mind that boxes, bubble wrap, and packing peanuts are costly. the cost of packaging your purchase is also taken into consideration when determining the shipping charge.

** if you live in alaska, washington, hawaii, or another place that is super far from georgia, i will not be shipping via fedex...it is just too costly for you and for me. usps will be used and i will certainly be in touch prior to shipping. (in some cases, additional shipping charges will apply - but we will certainly chat about that, too :))

** if you are local, and do not need your purchase shipped, enter LOCALPICKUP at checkout. you will not be charged shipping and i will contact you to arrange pick up.
Refunds and Exchanges
i want you to love your piece - if you don't, don't feel bad....i'll get over it! :) just package up the piece with the same care that was taken when it was sent, and send it back to me. as long as i get it back within 30 days of the purchase date, i will gladly refund the purchase price. i can't refund the shipping cost though - wish i could. but i can't. i know you understand.
